  "Feature, not a bug!" (one of my favorite sentences)

  This is clearly stated (or at least "under-"stated...) in the documentation:
"The region delimited by OPEN and closed curves can be filled" (page 8, last
paragraph). This is a design choice. See also the \psarc* example page 12 and
the \parabola* example page 14.
